We were pleased for many of our Upper Sixth leavers yesterday, as they received their A level results.

Despite the uncharted circumstances, the majority had their hard work rewarded and they will now be able to move to their chosen universities and colleges. Some individuals have been adversely affected by the statistical nature of the awarding process, but we will continue to work with them towards getting the qualifications they are capable of achieving.

The Headmaster, Alasdair Kennedy, said: “This year group have led the School so well, both in the example they set in their academic work, but even more so in the character and adaptability they have shown in the last few months especially.  They have come through the difficulties of this year’s exam process and they have the energy and determination to make the most of the opportunities ahead of them.  I am confident they will get the best from themselves as well as from those around them in whatever communities they will now join.  We look forward to seeing them back at Trinity in the future.”

Head of Sixth Form, Antonia Geldeard said, “After the challenging months of lockdown, I am very pleased for our Upper Sixth leavers, the large majority of whom are now off to their first-choice universities, conservatoires and art colleges. We are very sorry not to have been able to see our students in person this week to celebrate all that they have achieved during their time at Trinity and to thank them for their great support and commitment to our community.  We wish them all the very best for their futures and the new opportunities which lie ahead.”

Beth Fitzpatrick, who will study Music at Oxford University, said: “I owe so much to Trinity. It gave me numerous opportunities, both academic, musical and pastoral. I am so grateful for the support of my teachers, who guided me so patiently and effectively. I must give a special thank you to the Music Department, who helped me develop as an academic musician. Trinity has prepared me for the big leap to university and I will always be grateful for the wonderful time I spent there.”

Alex Harper has secured a place at Cambridge to study Natural Sciences. Alex said: I’m extremely happy with my results after all the hard work over the past few years. I am so grateful to my teachers who supported me through the process. I can’t wait to pursue a study path I know I’ll genuinely enjoy!”

Sebastian Thorpe, who will be studying Medicine at King’s College, London said: “I’m over the moon with my results and my time at Trinity. My teachers and other staff helped me above and beyond during the whole journey. It made my experience fun and enjoyable, while still achieving my university goals”
